What my shape says, 2016
Starting from a question/invitation spread via web - What story, sentence or word represents the idea that I have of my shape? - Claudia Losi actively involved hundreds of women in the creation of an artwork/story which took shape through a performance. By answering the trigger question, many kinds of women told many stories, reflecting a range of relationships between individuals and their bodies, their shapes, and these stories began to interweave to the point of creating a collective diary.
The answers received, of which there were around a thousand, were transcribed one by one in their original languages onto kilometres of cotton strips, especially dyed in the colours of thirteen different skin tones, chosen from among all the possible shades. During the event, four women took turns, like a kind of ritual, to stand on a great ladder in order to tie the strips to a circular iron structure: hanging from the ceiling five metres up, revolving mechanically, maintaining the ribbons in constant ‘movement’.
